Back and neck injuries should be taken very seriously. Your central nervous system is intricately woven into your neck and back and an injury can cause serious impairment if left unattended. Your spine is a very complex structure, composed of muscle, nerves, cartilage, and interconnected vertebrae. Even a slight misalignment can cause a cascade of negative effects.
The National Institute of Health highlights this 2017 study, wherein the prevalence of chronic low back pain in US adults aged 20–69 years old was measured to be 13.1% or roughly 45 million Americans. The professionals at Stem Cellutions have years of experience accurately diagnosing back and neck injuries and providing regenerative medicine as a form of therapy. Our mission is to provide our patients with the highest standard of care and to restore their quality of life.
Leading Causes of Back, Neck, and Disc Injuries
Your entire posterior chain is interconnected, so a back or neck injury can have widespread pain and symptoms. Some common causes of injury could be pulled or strained muscles or bruising from blunt force. These can usually be taken care of with simple, over-the-counter medication and ample rest. Below is a list of conditions that require medical correction as they are signs of poor spinal health or cellular degeneration.
SI Joint: The Sacroiliac joint is the location where the spine joins to the hips.
Facet Joint: these are small, auxiliary joints that connect outside of the larger vertebrae, responsible for maintaining the correct posture of the spine. As joint health declines, they can make bone on bone contact as well as pinch nearby nerves.
Bulging/Herniated Disc: located between the vertebrae in the spine, they act as a cushion between the bones in the spine. Poor joint health can cause them to become inflamed and protrude from the cavity, pinching nearby nerves and causing significant pain

Treatment Options for Back and Neck Injuries
Injuries that occur in the neck or back need to be cared for promptly and in a comprehensive manner. Injuries that cause a misalignment in the back can not only cause lasting damage but can create the conditions that cause the joints in the back and neck to degenerate over time. Essentially, what might be a small injury today, could become a chronic injury in a few months. Operating on the back and neck can be extremely risky as the area is packed with sensitive nerves and tissues. The professionals at Stem Cellutions help our patients avoid unnecessary back and neck surgery by providing non-invasive methods of regenerative medicine.
Stem cells can be extracted from adipose (fat) or bone marrow and are packed with unprogrammed cells that, once introduced to an injury site, stimulate the process of cellular regeneration.
PRP uses an extract from your blood that has been separated and condensed into a concentrated dose of plasma. Packed with the building blocks for cellular growth, it provides an injury site with everything it needs to replace damaged tissue.
